Kayleigh Shannon was a 19 year old student at the University of Guelph (originally from Grey County) who died in her sleep on January 24th from a heart rhythm condition called LQTS (More on the condition if you click here).
She was a huge fan of John Mayer- and her father had even planned to play ‘Daughters’ at her wedding. A friend had posted to the Ellen Degeneres facebook page asking for help to get John Mayer’s attention before his show last night in Toronto.
Emily Campbell explained in her facebook post that Kayleigh’s family had floor tickets to the show and had asked for John to sing ‘Daughters’ in memory of Kayleigh.
The post got over 1600 shares and appeared to work. According to the ‘Overheard at Guelph’ facebook page- John Mayer dedicated ‘Daughters’ to Kayleigh.
Here is a video of Mayer performing ‘Daughters’ at the concert. He dedicates the song to Kayleigh at the end. (Thanks to Joyce Cheng for the video).
